Topics regarding layoffs at Bass Pro Shops
Sad when you work in a bass pro store that has an employee postive Gor rhis but They will not let you know who, so how the HELL do you know if you have been around this merson
I saw the company is doing seasonal hires. Anyone know if an employee who was laid off (not fired) can apply for those positions? I am also curious if anyone who was part of the layoffs back in the middle of the year has tried to apply. I’m just... — read more
I found it interesting that the company won these awards for outstanding service and yet they treat employees like dirt. And winning “Most Reputable Company” ….don’t make me laugh... — read more
Sometimes I have to wonder why are we even open. I'm not complaining - I still have a job that's giving me some measure of security as I look for something else. But even I can see that the numbers don't justify keeping us in business. Are others in... — read more
So Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of Thanksgiving the stores are opening at 6am. How wonderful (sarcasm tone).
Anyone know when 401k stuff will start back up?
Listen I know it’s great basspro can brag about hiring people during the pandemic but this is the worst group of hires I’ve seen in the 5 years I’ve worked here. We barely got anyone to show up for our hiring day and the people we did hire aren’t... — read more
It’s very unfortunate it has come to what it has. Losing knowledge with people leaving. Hiring kids who have no idea what they are doing. Everything and mean everything is about Club Card. Stock has been an issue for over twenty years for my store... — read more
Will there be more sometime soon?
Is it me, or does Bass Pro have a problem with their Ads ? I have worked here for a little over a year now, and it seems we never have enough ad goods, and sometimes don't get them at all. We usually run out of product in the first day or so, but... — read more
I thought a person had to be employed 90 days before they could apply for another job in the basspro stores as we have had 2 jobs open and people who have been at Bass Pro a while put in for them and they were giving to people who have not been here... — read more
Santa's wonderland is on! Will he have to wear a mask?
Any rumors about the status of Thanksgiving and how black Friday will be handled?
Seen customers with the F word on their shirts few times in my store. Store probably afraid of getting no support from corporate in terms of telling a customer they can not wear the shirt. Corporate is useless.
How in the heck is the company telling multi year full time outfitters/managers they can’t get bonuses/review pay increases for the entire year because of Covid, but turn around and hand out $1000 retention bonuses to new employees day 1. I’m in the... — read more
Started working for Basspro 3 weeks ago and I think I’ve made a huge mistake. What is going on with this company? Everything seems outdated and run as cheaply as possible. Most of the employees who aren’t full time are worthless. We are missing so... — read more
Word is CLUB is going to be restructured for the holiday. Company is going to be keeping a more aggressive eye on employees who struggle with it. Management might have to discipline at the same level as a no call/insubordination which include write... — read more
Any stores with employees testing positive? If so, any protocol being followed?
Former GSM here. I left several months ago and now work for a grocery store. One of the best moves I have ever made. For myself not feeling safe was the last straw but the past year contributed as well. Essentially I managed softlines and my team was... — read more
Does basspro/cabelas plan on being competitive at all when it comes to employee benefits? I know we just received a 1 time bonus but we lost another manager to Lowe’s (who has been giving a bonus every month, plus hazard pay). Walmart, Sams, Costco... — read more
I’m the only full time/lead associate in our camping department. Just had a meeting with what’s left of our managers. Our new store manager just went over how we will be having to take over new responsibilities because the company is slowing down... — read more
Glad to see this happening and tip of the cap for all who are on the front, middle, back, top and bottom of the line supporting the customers.
Hopefully this will boost store traffic and sales of Tracker Boats
How many stores lost their GM or Asst GM?
Any update on layoffs that where going to happen around this time? I would figure if something where to happen, it would be after the holiday. Hearing managers talk about corporate HR visiting stores in my district this month. I’m on edge and... — read more
Good club card day=smiles and jokes Bad club card day=yelling, stomping and rearranging displays for no reason This cannot continue.
I work the register and have to deal with the people that don’t want to wear masks. When I ask them to put one on because it’s required in our state they cuss me out and call me all different types of names. They sometimes call either the GM, the... — read more
i worked for a mass retailer before joining bass pro. I don't see how they stayed in business so long with the old systems, poor replenishment process. Process other companies was using ten years ago haven't even came to Bass Pro. Every year the... — read more
Just learned that one guy is store manager in three stores. Gainesville Fl, Macon Ga and Savannah Ga. The stores are all at least 3 to 4 hours apart. How will this work out?
Sadly this company has gone into the toilet when it used to be the best place to work in retail. My store is now a joke and everyone hates it there now. They lecture about club constantly and they lecture about stocking and all they care about is... — read more
Just heard from a few managers that was fired today. Company is going down. Who will be left to run stores.
I don’t know if this is just my district or if this is company wide. Some older leads have been let go of have been offered demotions with a pay cut. Younger part time (probably min wage) are then being hired to fill in positions. The leads that are... — read more
I'm telling you, we'd go better if they all quit and no replacements were put in place! That's how much they contribute to the proper functioning of this company!
Our store hasn’t fed the fish in almost two weeks and they are starting to die. Idk if this is a company thing or our store manager is a lunatic and is cheap as hell right now.
